. and then another. and then another. he gave them a quick -- a completely inebriated inaugural address. lincoln was mortified. i unfortunately for johnson, it sets a public image of the andrew johnson. another burly disastrous vice- presidential inaugural address was calvin coolidge as vice- president. he used his address to tell the senate how they should operate. it set him off on a bad -- starting in 1937, that is when the congress started before the president. now president and vice presidents are sworn outside on the steps. the vice president lost his chance to give an inaugural address. there was one exception in that long tradition of the inauguration speech tell that the capital. that was in 1945 when franklin roosevelt was being sworn in for a fourth time. franklin roosevelt, his third inauguration was done at the capitol, but his fourth one was in the middle of world war ii. he felt this was not the inopportune time to have an elaborate inauguration. he decided on his own to move the inauguration to the south front of the capital. the joint committee was not happy with that decision.
. this was a crisis in 1861 when lincoln was elected and he couldn't respond to the cessation of the southern states. another was in 1933. roosevelt, the depression going on roosevelt could do nothing to respond. hoover was the lame duck president. it was decided to move it up to january so the new president could respond more quickly to a crisis. >> if it's on sunday january 20th do they have to move it? >> the constitution says the president must take the oath of office at noon on january 20th. that's been the tradition. back in the 19th sentry they moved it a day. now the president takes the oath on the 20th which is sunday and takes it again publicly on the 21st. the constitution requires that it is done on the 20th. >> and president obama being sworn in this year on martin luther king day, the significance of that? >> a lot of tremendous symbolism here. first of all he's using martin luther king's bible and the lincoln bible. we're talking about lincoln with the movie. this is the 150th anniversary of the emancipation proclamation. there is a monument to dr. king. 50

ceremony, he'll be using both abraham lincoln's bible and dr. king's bible. obviously a heavy amount of symbolism there. >> and chief justice john roberts helms both of those? >> that's right and the first hispanic justice on the supreme court sonia sotomayor will to g take on. we had jen saki leading off the top of the show, your former colleague, as you guys were out on the road for the campaign, and we know that the president is now relaunching his campaign efforts for his second term to get the agenda across, leading off with gun control. do you think that organizing for action will actually work, that the catalyst of newtown combined with that of the machine that is the president's re-election style could work to get the american support the president feels he needs? >> i absolutely think so. 90% of the public thinks there should be universal background checks. you go to members of congress and they say i can't vote for that. i'm fearful of the mra and the organizing efforts that they would put together in my community, my congressional district. we know it's time to align where
is lincoln's second inaugural. you know, what you want to do is call attention to, you know, this is a speech that speaks to all americans. not just to your constituency. call attention to the values that can unite us and move us forward. there's not too much more you can do in that context. >> michael, thank you very much. >>> speaking of the values that unite us, this week as we remember the life and legacy of the reverend martin luther king jr., we've got something very special to share with you. previously unreleased interviews with dr. king in atlanta have now been discovered. the 32-year-old civil rights leader was then talking about how at the age of 5 years old he first became conscious of racism and how his mother tried to instill a sense of pride over inferiority in those difficult times. >> it seems to me that the only thing the mother can do, the negro mother, is to try from the beginning to instill in the child a sense of somebody-ness. this is what my mother tried to do. she made it very clear that in spite of these conditions, you are as good as anybody else, and you must not f
to go with lincoln's second inaugural. >> awesome. >> 1865. >> i remember that. it was a good one. >> as i said, the video footage is a little grainy. the audio wasn't there. i was thinking of something else. there's a moment i think is kind of worth sharing because it's rare to encapsulate the failure of a presidency in to one day, the inaugural day. inauguration day. i would say that would be jimmy carter. whatever you think of jimmy carter's politics, the ideology, it wasn't a very successful presidency. and the roots of it sort of evident on the day of the inauguration for two reasons. first, his staff kind of bungled the, you know, showing proper deference to the speaker of the house, tip o'neill, for instance. crucially important guy for getting the carter program through congress. he was miffed because he wasn't treated well with tickets to inaugural festivities and balls and that sort of thing. the leadership of the democratic party in congress, carter won the nomination in an end and around them understanding the new primary rules before they did. he didn't show proper de
. now, the batman -- the batmobile started out as a concept car in 1955 called the lincoln futura, cost $250,000 to build and originally painted white. the car had a role in the 1959 film "it started with a kiss" with debbie reynolds and then the famous car customizer was commissioned to build the batmobi batmobile, paint it had black and orange and added the fire-breathing exhaust and a star is born. batmobiles that look like the original but all copies made from fiberglass. the original is steel, and the others were not used in the show. you can see it here in action. barrett jackson, the company auctioning the car said the most likely buyer is an institution, maybe an entertainment or museum. i can see it ending up in a theme park or hollywood studio. either way this is a car that became a character spawning at least five future versions. the latest one from "the dark knight rises" and in my mind though, the greatest batmobile is the first. we'll see what it sells for on saturday. >> that's what i think. adam west's car is the best one. >> yeah. it's hard. i spent a lot of time as a
